Summary: I didn't know anything about any GPS systems so I read a lot of reviews. Just about all of them commented that the Garmin is very user friendly and that is what I have found it to be. It is an excellent system, so much so I bought 2 more for my two sons.
Summary: it is very easy to use and very accurate it don't have lot of extras on it and don't have a large enough memory to hold the hole U.S. it does have the garmin lock that makes it so if someone else steals it they can't use it which is nice I always wanted a GPS so i bid on it and won
Summary: The Good - Great screen, can see well in direct sunlight. - Very easy interface in the GPS itself and in the Mapsource software on the PC. - Like all Garmins, since its almost an industry standard, you can easily get maps of almost anywhere in the world.
Summary: HAD SPENT A LOT OF TIME ASKING PEOPLE QUESTIONS ON THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS, COULDN'T REALLY GET ANY GOOD FEEDBACK. I WAS ORDERING THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY WIFE WHO IS RELUCTANT TO TRAVEL ON HER OWN. WANTED SOMETHING SIMPLE TO OPERATE YET PRECISE.
